Angst-filled Adele is on a Roll

File under 'English Rose channels Janis Joplin, Bette Midler, and Mama Cass.'

Pop goes the culture. British-born Adele Adkins, age 22, is the reigning queen of "heartbroken soul." She graces the current Rolling Stone cover. Appropriately one of her latest tunes is called "Rolling in the Deep." Compared to any hideous Lady Gaga video, Adele puts on a tame show, but her voice is far more substantial than LG's. The song really picks up near the 1:00 mark. Take a listen.
